Stricker struggles on Open day two to finish at three-over for the tournament
TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) -- Tom Watson had another magical day at the British Open.
Tiger Woods appears to be going home before the weekend.
Watson bounced back from a dismal start, rolling in two impossibly long putts to share the 36-hole lead with little-known American Steve Marino. Watson played the final 10 holes in 4 under for an even-par 70 after an opening 65.
Marino shot 68, and the two will start Saturday in the final group at 5-under 135.
Woods needs a miraculous comeback just to make the cut. Two double bogeys on the back side pushed him to 6 over for the day, 7 over for the tournament and three strokes off the likely cut line with four holes left.
Woods has missed only one cut in a major during his professional career: the 2006 U.S. Open that followed the death of his father.
